You can take the man out of the James Bond franchise, but you can’t take the James Bond franchise out of the man. Or so it seems based on the Some Kind of Beautiful trailer, which stars Pierce Brosnan as a notorious British womanizer. Sound familiar?
But while 007’s adventures usually revolved around assassins, femmes fatale, and megalomaniacs, the issues here are more mundane — marriage, a kid, an awkward love triangle. (Of course, given that said love triangle involves Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba, you could argue his problems are just as exciting.) Watch the Some Kind of Beautiful trailer after the jump.

Former Wachowski collaborator James McTeigue has a new film called Survivor, in which Pierce Brosnan, as a killer nicknamed “the Watchmaker,” helps frame a government officer played by Milla Jovovich. The thriller looks like it is set between the action churn of the typical Millennium Entertainment film and the tone and action of the Bourne series. But it’s a slight change of pace for Jovovich, and may give Brosnan a chance to be entertainingly evil. Check out the Survivor trailer below. Read More »
The Weinstein Company have released the trailer for their international thriller No Escape. No, this isn’t the big screen adaptation of Dan Trachtenberg’s Portal: No Escape you’ve been hoping for… The story follows Owen Wilson‘s family who move to Southeast Asia to suddenly find themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising, and must escape as rebels attack the city. The story sounds like a grounded character thriller but the trailer focuses on big moments of action you might not expect from that logline. The film is from Quarantine/Devil director John Erick Dowdle, and co-stars Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell. Watch the No Escape trailer now embedded after the jump.

Even though Pierce Brosnan only did four James Bond movies, and maybe only one great one, he’ll forever be connected to the character. Whenever he plays a role with any kind of Bond connotation, it almost feels like another adventure of 007. The Thomas Crowne Affair and After the Sunset are two examples and now there’s a third: The November Man.
Directed by Roger Donaldson (Species, Cocktail), it tells the story of a retired CIA man (Brosnan) forced back into action when an important asset (Olga Kurylenko) is threatened. The hunt makes him the target of the people he was once sworn to protect.
Based on the November Man book series by Bill Granger, The November Man opens August 27. Watch the second, and full, November Man trailer below. Read More »

A dozen years after his last outing as Bond, Pierce Brosnan is getting back into the spy game in The November Man. He even has a former Bond Girl accompanying him, Quantum of Solace‘s Olga Kurylenko.
But the first trailer for the Roger Donaldson-directed thriller feels a bit more melancholy than your average 007 adventure. There are lots of shots of men coolly walking away from big explosions, sure, but there’s also a sad little speech about how “love has no place in this life.” Watch the November Man trailer and see some images after the jump.

Pierce Brosnan hasn’t played James Bond in years, but his days of daring aren’t totally behind him. In the new The Love Punch trailer, he plans to steal a $10 million diamond after a shady French financier makes off with his pension fund.
The difference is that this Pierce Brosnan is not a badass spy, but an ordinary businessman with three equally ill-equipped co-conspirators: his snarky ex-wife Kate (Emma Thompson) and two bumbling neighbors (Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie). Naturally, sparks fly and hilarity ensues. Watch the Love Punch trailer after the jump.
